We’ll work with objects of different weights, sizes, shapes, and functions to hide the body behind them and build something: a sculpture, a house, or a station.
We’ll be working on the memory of touch, the memory of using our muscles, and we will construct an image of memory, the memory of touching an object. Which senses do we use, and how to work with them?
How can we move beyond the everyday, transforming functional physical actions into something abstract and poetic when working with everyday movements? Composition as a continuous act of construction.
